Pizza Hotdogs

I normally top my hotdogs with the same ol’ thing every time: ketchup and mustard. We eat a lot of hotdogs during the summer months and I was getting a bit bored with them. I decided to change up the toppings just a little and see what else would taste good on a hotdog. Surprisingly, there is a whole other world out there beyond the traditional condiments!

The recipe I made today is a Pizza Hotdog! It’s also really easy to make. Just take a cooked hotdog place it in a buttered bun and top with pizza sauce, cheese and your favourite pizza toppings. I found these mini pepperoni and thought they would be perfect on a hot dog. They fit the bun better than a regular pepperoni slice would.

These Pizza Hotdogs were a hit! My kids love them and they are also very filling- much more so than a regular hot dog is.  What are your favourite hotdog toppings?
